Simone was a Young Facilitator of Staf's the Voices Project, having previously been part of the project's steering group. Her interest in taking part was prompted by her own experience of the care system. Simone's role in the Voices was to make sure young people's voices weren't drowned out.

She is currently studying at University of Stirling doing her Social Work degree, and is working towards her goal of becoming a children and families social worker.

Simone is also involved in looking to establish East Renfrewshire's Champions Board and is involved in working with the Life Changes Trust as part of a Care Experienced Young Persons (CEYP) advisory group for Aspirational Awards. Simone is also a young mother to her daughter Lilly, which is one of her proudest achievements.
